Akron - City of Opportunity. Akron's growth falls into five periods, following successive stages of transportation - canoe, canal boat, railroad, motor transport and air-way. The rise of each new type of trade route opened the way to Akron's greater development. Akron ranks second in Ohio and eleventh in the United States in industrial payrolls and value of manufactured products. It is the largest rubber manufacturing center in the world. Akron has a Metropolitan Park system of over 2,000 acres, city parks, Municipal University and a fine public school system.
